Apple production snapping back in Michigan after disastrous year in 2012

by

UNDATED  (WKZO) -- The Apple industry in Michigan is making a big comeback after last year’s disaster in the orchards of west Michigan.

Compared to the 2.7-million bushels that came out last year because of the last year’s early warm up and April frosts, they are projecting they will produce 30 million bushels this fall, which is well above the average crop.

The downside is that all apple producing regions also appear to be having a good year, so the price apple farmers will get won’t be as grand as the crop.

They are estimating nationally over 246-million bushels will be harvested this fall.

You can learn a lot more about the crop and hear the Pure Michigan Apples radio ad at Michiganapples.com.
